I just bought a 2011 Volkswagen Routan SEL Premium Calla Lily White, CPO.
I decided not to drill the front bumper when I found out there is no bracket and it literally just drills into the bumper.
The front fascia looks great without it there, so decided to come up with something.
At the moment, I just zip-tied the plate to the black plastic molding.
I just ordered this:
Therefore, I can zip-tie the bracket (= no drilling at all), then mount the plate to it (= no visible zip-ties, as in right now in the above picture, you can see the zip-ties).
Thought I'd share.
